I'm not usually one for making a list of resolutions, but I guess it's only natural that I find myself looking forward to the coming year. What have I done this past year, and what can I do next year? 2010 was pretty busy for me. I had two solo exhibits plus the birth of my son (now five months old already!). In the early part of the year, I worked on expanding my charcoal drawings to be more complex. I added two drawings to the mother/baby series and one to the large African mammal series, plus several others. Since my boy was born I have been slowly working on my first pastel painting, which I hope to complete within a month.

So where do I see myself next year at this time? I want to have several pastel paintings done as well as a few more charcoal drawings. I want to budget my time better so I can get more artwork done while the baby naps. I also want to get back to posting here more often and to enter more national exhibits. And, of course, I want to push myself to get better. This should be a good year.
